Skool Nerse Time

This is Mrs. Grumpy. Yes, another exciting school year has begun, and I'd like to share a short play with you.


Kid walks into my office today, doing some sort of weird I-can't-hold-still dance move.

Nurse Grumpy: "What's up?"

Little kid: "My butt itches!"

Nurse Grumpy: "Have you tried scratching it?"

Kid scratches ass for 10 seconds.

Little kid: "Thanks nurse, that feels much better." (leaves my office)

I'd just like to say -- I have so many good memories of my elementary school nurse. She was an older lady who had been a nurse during WW2. Talk about hardcore.

Isn't it great the kid was first sent to the school nurse (who is a mother)? She knew by the dance kid hadn't just scratched (kid was in school, you aren't supposed to do that). But what if fancy doctor got a hold of kid? Not Grumpy but Dr. Brilliant. Kid would be put through million dollar tests and skin graft before anybody realized he just needed to scratch. That's why we have the wise Skool Nerse!

I do hope said kid was persuaded to wash his hands before returning to class and giving everybody pinworms.

OMG....is there really a human out there who does not have the brains to SCRATCH his own ASS?

Please try to infect this kid with mumps in an attempt to keep his DNA from spreading!

I once had a patient who was complaining that he hadn't urinated for 2 days. Bladder scan: >700ml. I asked the patient if he thought he could urinate in the toilet. He said yes (and did).

Still trying to figure out why he didn't just go by himself...

LOL! You'd really get a kick out of my youngest, she and her school nurse are great friends. ;)

I went to the dr. in 1989 for a probable concussion (headache for 5 days in a row after bumping head really hard). Here is what he said:

Dr: Take tylenol as needed. If you lose consciousness, call me.

WTF? How can I call him if I am unconscious?
